Gruaud Larose 2007

Gruaud Larose

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 90.0

A 2ème Cru Classé, Château Gruaud-Larose is famous for producing one of Saint-Julien’s most full-bodied wines. Highly tannic in its youth, this is a wine that fully opens-up and blossoms with age, to form an abundant blend of rich black fruits, cedar and liquorice flavours. The estate’s 80 hectares of vineyard comprise a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (c.65%), Merlot (c.25%), Cabernet Franc (c.8%) and Petit Verdot (c.2%). Based in Saint-Julien, the terroir benefits from dry soil and a warm climate from the July to September period. To Gruaud Larose, following organic and biodynamic agricultural practices is essential in assuring that their vines continue to thrive.

I find Gruaud Larose always make a more savoury, traditional style of Bordeaux than many. Elegant rather than muscular, this displays leather and black fruit on the nose. The palate is still fairly tight, with fine-grained tannins framing harmonious flavours of blackcurrant, sweet spices and tobacco. 2007 was an earlier drinking vintage that has worked well for this wine. It makes for delicious drinking now but still has time on its side. Worth decanting for an hour before serving.

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Gruaud Larose has a soft and slightly muffled bouquet, perhaps just with a touch of brettanomyces that shaves away some of the delineation. After time, there are scents of clove and scorched earth. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, modest dark berry fruit laced with cold tea and white pepper, yet it pulls up rather short on the finish and leaves you wanting more. Tasted February 2017.
